What are some sorts of characters you'd like to see less of in fiction? For me, I'm getting a little tired of the male protagonist whose father disappeared when the protag was a child, only for it to turn out that this event (a) makes the protag an heir to a massive great legacy of heroism, pluck, courage, intelligence, etc., and (b) the father is probably still alive somewhere but just as probably won't make it through the course of the movie/book series.
There's nothing WRONG with the trope, per se, I'm just kind of tired of it at this point. Maybe just once the protag's father could disappear and have it remain a random, unexplained mystery or something.
